Bulgur is a cereal food made from several different types of wheat, and it has a light, nutty flavor. It is a common ingredient in many Turkish and Middle Eastern dishes. In this recipe, bulgur is combined with chopped vegetables, pasta, and dried cranberries to create a healthy and hearty salad. Serve chilled and topped with green onions and feta cheese.
1 cup bulgur
1 cup orzo
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped, seeded cucumber
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup coarsely snipped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1. Place bulgur in a 2-cup glass measure; set aside. Cook orzo according to package directions. Drain orzo, reserving cooking water. Pour enough of the hot cooking water into the glass measure with the bulgur to equal 2 cups. Let bulgur stand for 45 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
2. In a large bowl combine cooked orzo, celery, carrot, cucumber, and cranberries. Add the bulgur; set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together olive oil, vinegar, parsley, shallot, sugar, salt, mustard, fennel seeds, and pepper. Add to bulgur mixture; toss well to combine. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours. Stir before serving. Top with green onions and feta cheese. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
